Holy fuck! That was diabolical! You little fucking beauty.

The Laser Baby is a baby Supe who has the power to emit heat rays from its eyes. They are a minor character of the first Season 1 of The Boys.

The Boys Series[]

Season One[]

That's a fuckin' baby Supe! Chosen by God, my ass. These cunts are made in a fuckin' lab!

After Hughie finds out from Ezekiel that Samaritan's Embrace acts as a front for Vought's illegal shipments of Compound V across the country, he directs Butcher and M.M to a local hospital that the charity is involved with. There, they discover a lab full of newborns being injected with Compound V through intravenous lines and realize that Compound V isn't just a performance-enhancer; it's what turns humans into Supes in the first place, meaning that all Supes were normal people once. One of these newborns is the Laser Baby, who is sound asleep when Butcher and M.M first enter the lab.

After Butcher extracts a small amount of Compound V from the Laser Baby's IV bag, he and M.M are suddenly ambushed by a group of security guards armed with assault rifles. In response, Butcher grabs the Laser Baby and gleefully uses the infant's powers to easily slaughter all the guards.

Now, keep your nose clean, sunshine, or I'll come back and stomp ya.
Billy Butcher to Laser Baby

Knowing that there won't be much time before more guards arrive, Butcher gently puts the Laser Baby back in their crib and tells the infant to stay out the trouble before he and M.M quickly escape the scene. Laser Baby as a standalone character is important - Edgar saying to Homelander that he is "not our most valuable asset," and that would be Vought's "confidential formula for Compound V" is demonstrated through Laser Baby. Laser Baby's status is unknown after this event.


  • Heat Vision: Similar to Homelander, the Laser Baby can generate blue heat energy from their eyes. These blasts of energy are powerful enough to easily cut through human flesh and bone.
  • Superhuman Hearing: Being a supe, he has better hearing beyond that of ordinary humans, capable of hearing certain frequencies.[1]


  • Jack Quaid has one of the limited edition 1:1 scale Laser Baby figures.[2]

  • During the promotion for Season Two, Amazon Prime Video released an AR game app named "Baby Laser Tag"[4][5], in which the player can use the baby to kill random Supes.
  • Michael Reeves was sponsored by Amazon to make a laser baby as seen in this video for the boys.
